Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Monks Orchard Primary School.

At Monks Orchard, everything we do starts with our children and our community. We know our children as individuals; as young people with dreams and ambitions, skills and difficulties, likes and dislikes - not just as statistics.

No generic, 'one size fits all,' scheme or programme could possibly meet the needs of all of our children, so we plan and deliver our own exciting, creative activities that motivate, challenge and drive them to achieve excellence.

A child’s family and community are a vital ingredient in a successful education. Our teachers work very hard to involve parents and carers and want to build strong, open, working relationships with you, so do come and talk to them. 

This website will give you an idea about life at Monks Orchard but the only way to find out what it is really like here is to visit. We know that once you see us at work, you will want your child to be part of the Monks Orchard Community.
